Chargers Rumors

Stevie Johnson to choose between Patriots and Chargers


Stevie Johnson will be choosing to sign with the San Diego Chargers or the New England Patriots. 

The San Diego Chargers are looking for help at wide receiver through free agency and they are looking for a veteran presence to add onto the roster. There are a number of players that the Chargers are interested in. One of the players that the team is interested in is Stevie Johnson.

Johnson is still available for the Chargers to pick up in free agency. He visited the Chargers on Friday and took a visit with the New England Patriots on Monday. He will be choosing between the two teams:

The Chargers are in desperate need for some help at the position. Johnson would be able to come in and take on a fair share of the snaps with Philip Rivers on offense. He would work with Malcom Floyd and Keenan Allen and could get playing time out of the slot and out wide.

Johnson has 3 straight seasons with 1000+ yards receiving during his tenure with the Buffalo Bills. He played with the San Fracisco 49ers last season and didn’t get the playing time. He still has that ability to pick up yards out of the slot and could be a weapon for the Chargers offense.

Johnson will be entering his 8th season and still is only 28 years old. He has plenty of potential to produce and could reach that potential with Philip Rivers throwing him the football. Johnson might be the best available fit for the Chargers on offense. If he were to choose to go to New England, the Chargers would have to go back to the drawing board.
